How Will VM Compete?


Dec 30, 2007, 8:34 PM
How will Virgin Mobile compete with MetroPCS and Cricket, each now offering unlimited local and long distance in metro areas in 20 states?

Granted, these services each deploy their own infrastructure and limit roaming*.

However, Boost Mobile, which traditionally has offered pay-as-you-go voice and PTT on Sprint Nextel's iDEN network, is now offering unlimited local and long distance in select metro areas on Sprint's CDMA network.

I think Amp'D mobile and XE was the beginning of a natural correction/ consolidation for the pay-as-you wireless field.

While Virgin Mobile was a pioneer of the pay-as-you-go model and continues to innovate on content, it needs to catch up on the price end.

Perhaps they've been too distracted by...

Not to mention that Virgin needs phones with better features.

virgin is sprint pre paid option. They don't have to compete until the others are nationwide! Which will never happen.

Tru dat. But once the phone choices get better, like The VM phones in other countries (check the site, if you doubt me), then I'll go to VM.

yeah true

New here. I think they need some new phones with more features like video capabilities and more bluetooth phones. The day is coming very soon that handheld phones will be banned while driving(Great Idea!) to protect the motoring public from disoriented drivers. My VM Cyclops is my 4th cell phone and I am pretty satisfied with it and the service. I haven't scoped out the competition too much, however. Eh?
